Blues Jam 2017 is now in the history books!

 

A very BIG thank you to Sponsors and guests!  Without all of you there would be no Blues Jam.
Planning is already under way for Blues Jam 2018.

 

 

The 12th Annual Rotary Blues event is being held on Friday September 16, 2017. Funds raised from this event will help support Rotary programs in our community. The Club has placed a focus on literacy and, as such, donates a large portion of funds raised to the Ferst Foundation Literacy Project. The program is focused on Georgia children ages 0 to 5 within 75 counties and communities participating throughout the state. Children enrolled in the program receive a book a month through the age of 5. Many children enrolled have not owned a book until receiving one under the program. During the life of the program, over 115,000 books have been distributed to kids in Fannin, Gilmer and Union counties. Illiteracy is often correlated with poverty, crime and unemployment. Matter of fact, it is understood that state prison populations are forecast based on literacy test completed in the 3rd grade. For more information on the great work of the Ferst Foundation, please visit Ferst Foundation.org or contact your Blue Ridge Rotary representative.

 

This is our 12th annual fundraiser. Since partnering with the Blue Ridge Blues and BBQ Festival, our event has been a hit every year! Therefore, this event provides maximum exposure to our sponsors during the Blues Festival weekend event which is sponsored by the Blue Ridge Lodging Association. The Blues Festival will be held in Downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia from September 15th through the 16th, 2017. This event brings thousands of visitors to our community providing all of us an opportunity to show case our beautiful North Georgia Mountains and the wonderful quality of life we all enjoy here. Your contribution helps our local businesses thrive, as event brings out of town guest who shop and give back to our community as a whole. No donation is too small to make sure we help the residents of Blue Ridge.
